Wonderful and kinda healthy! I've never baked with dates before, but had a box in my pantry and thought I'd give this a try. I'll definitely make this again. There's nothing I'd change or tweek, it's perfect as is.
Enjoyed these a lot, including the ease in preparation! I did use rounded measures for the dates & walnuts, but other than that, followed the directions right on down! These are very nice breakfast muffins as well as great in-between snacks! [Tagged made & reviewed for one of my Vegan groupmates in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap #6]
